Black Bear – Review
Cinema has been blurring the lines of fiction versus reality since its inception. In order to be compelling, it has to be believable, right? More than that, it’s been lifting the lid on its own creative process – everything from Singin’ in the Rain to 8 ½ – has offered us a glimpse as to what it’s like to be in the business they call show.
Lawrence Michael Levine’s Black Bear offers up a little…
To Catch a Thief (1955, Alfred Hitchcock)
Watching Behind Her Eyes and this song playing,
I know place we can go, babe
Coming home, come unfold, babe

Act Eleven, Scene Two | Once Again
The cool night breeze sends trees rustling and shivers down your body. It’s colder than usual out, yet you have no plans of staying at the dorm tonight. You step out and see Legoshi’s already waiting next to the door; Haru’s the only one missing, though you have a hunch as to where she could be waiting by.
“Ready to go sort things out?” the wolf asks, facing down with a smile. Similar to earlier in the afternoon, there seems to be more behind it, but you try not to pry for the moment being. “Or do you need some time first?”
You tuck your jacket closer to you and wrap your arms around yourself. Despite the wool, you feel colder now, and the longer you think, the worst it gets. Thinking you were barely a building away from Juno made your heart clench and speed up too much for you to bare. The rest of your thoughts are a mess as you try to consider the options. Haru had suggested you talked with her tonight, or at the very least, during the rest of the week, yet you didn’t feel ready for neither today nor tomorrow, and not even the day after tomorrow. Facing Juno not only meant a possible risk for her again, but it also involved being honest and upfront about your feelings and explaining why you’d chosen to leave so suddenly from the dorm, leaving her all on her own.
Excuse me, do you have fire?
The Wild Goose Lake (2019) dir. Diao Yinan
If you are a sucker for a good Gothic horror film like me you will love this film by Lucinda Coxon this film is a masterpiece right down to the end, this movie tells the story of Dr. Faraday, the son of a housemaid, who has built a life of quiet respectability as a country doctor. During the long hot summer of 1948, he is called to a patient at Hundreds Hall, where his mother once worked. The Hall has been home to the Ayres family for more than two centuries. But it is now in decline and its inhabitants - mother, son and daughter - are haunted by something more ominous than a dying way of life. When he takes on his new patient, Faraday has no idea how closely, and how disturbingly, the family’s story is about to become entwined with his own. summary credit to Focus Features

NOT SAFE - A,V•
Rough hands are patting at my shoulders and then they get a grip beneath my armpits and haul me to my feet. Someone is saying something to me but I’m too far gone to hear them properly. I bat at them weakly but then they grab my arms and clamp them to my sides and their grip is far too strong to break. “C-c-copepod,” I stammer, blinking furiously, finally realizing that it’s Fumi. “There’s a copepod just there,” I say, rolling my eyes to try and indicate that it’s behind us. “We have to run!” I shriek.
